Recently, rock slope in large scale is often accompanied with the construction of mountain roads and power plants. Rock in nature has a number of discontinuities such as bedding plane, joints, fracture zones and others. In order to improve rock slope stability, it is necessary to research shear properties of rock joint. In this paper shear properties of rock joint were studied by tilting test. Relations between properties of roughness and shear behavior of rock joint are investigated experimentally. The roughness are examined by compared with shear strength. Consequently, it becomes clear that the engineering properties and failure state modes of slope is different by JRC, and the peak friction angle is different by percent of filling.
